This was my final project at Coding Dojo , a web development code accelerator where I coded for 9 weeks, 5 days a week, 8-12 hours a day. For our final project, we could build whatever we wanted.
Playing with Google maps streetview, I thought to myself, "I wish there was an easier way to see all the streetviews on a route." So, I decided to tackle this as my final project. Two weeks later I was happily flying through google streetviews all around the globe. The design and implementation has remained mostly unchanged.
After posting it on reddit , it quickly reached 10k unique visitors and 50k API calls in one week. With nearly 100 comments in the thread, it was like I suddenly had users all around the globe testing my product and leaving feedback. This led to valuable insights on users' common pitfalls and design opportunities.
The project hasn't been maintained much, but it represents my first venture into web development and my drive towards creating interesting interactive experiences for the web.
